DEVELOPING DISCIPLES

Jesus said, "As the Father has sent me, so I send you" (John 20:21). Whether you participate in missions by serving locally, going on trips, giving financially or committing to pray, we have all been called to missions. Our ultimate goal is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who know, love and follow Him.

LOCAL MISSIONS

Church doesn't just happen on Sunday mornings. We encourage people to get outside the walls of the building and invest in their community by showing others the love of Christ. 

 

LOCAL SCHOOLS

We partner with local schools like Thames Elementary and Petal Primary. Volunteers serve as mentors, classroom readers, ESL tutors, student tutors, career speakers and weekend food backpack helpers.

School Supply Drive

You help us IMPRESS the transforming love of Jesus into our community when you serve! Starting Sunday, July 9, Venture Church will be collecting school supplies for local elementary school students attending school this fall. Drop off supplies at the yellow tent in your campus atrium.

We partner with locally-based ministries within the communities where a Venture Church campus is located. In Hattiesburg, we partner with many organizations such as Edwards Street Fellowship Center, which serves the Hattiesburg community through their feeding program and their free health clinic. In Stone County, Venture Church partners with Blessing In A Backpack to feed 70 elementary school students weekly.
